You may be becoming hyperthyroid. Have your TSH and FT3 been changing? If you don't have symptoms I would send the results to your GP and ask for a follow up thyroid test including FT4 and FT3 in 6-8 weeks. If you are symptomatic make an appointment to discuss the results and symptoms with your GP next week.

See your GP. Symptoms are hyperthyroid.

If you reply quickly he may change his mind and you won't have to wait for another referral.
